Is Toluna a scam?

So, I've only been a member of Toluna for a short period time. After struggling financially and with other problems for a long period of time, I finally got back on my feet looking for more out of life. I want to do the best I can do for myself everyday, mentally, physically, for happiness and for pride. I feel like I've come a long way from the girl I was a year ago. I find importance in things I was so ignorant about, and have begun to see the bigger picture in life. After using the internet more and more for things I never thought of, I came across survey websites and am now a daily user and member of quite a few, I find it doesn't take up time if you're not doing anything in the first place, or it's a great way to relax and learn about new things, so It seemed great for me. I find most sites work very differently with different rewards, and different point processes. If you google Toluna you'll be surprised to find the website had been in a rut for a few years, unreliable to customers with rewards, point processing, and promised vouchers still being processed months on later. The site has improved since then, with a new look but regular system. I'd like to know how many 'gifties' have become real and if anyone has actually received them? and If the vouchers are legit? How long do you stick to something before you realize it's a waste of your time? Toluna has become my favourite survey website, but should I really be putting all my efforts and time into it? I want to know I will be rewarded.

Oops, hit the post button by accident! To continue...to make sure about the opinions not accruing points. They used to before.
The vouchers are legit. The fifties apparently are won but very, very sparsely.
To remember about Toluna: don't take yourself or anyone else too seriously. OK?

Toluna is not a scam, it can be a great way to talk people from all around the world, post your own opinions and complete the surveys that you are given which earn points that can be redeemed for cash or other products.

No Toluna is not a scam, though long time lags before you get your survey points has been a problem in the past. Previously they did not award your points until the quota set by the survey client had been fulfilled (Aaaaagh: often 6-8 weeks).
But they have now remedied that and you will get your points 24 hours after completing the survey. It's a good site, just not the highest payment per survey around. There are plenty of others, but none with the interactive aspect which enables you to make contacts around the world.
It is also trouble free with regard to viruses and malicious software, unlike Facebook which is one of the most insecure sites on the planet and constantly under attack from hackers. Found that out the hard way and had to wipe my hard drive and rebuild from scratch.
Agree with Georgel - you'll never be able to support yourself doing surveys for anyone ..... but if you work multiple sites you can achieve a steady monthly trickle of various gift cards and also direct debits to your nominated bank a/c (not PayPal = crap not usable everywhere). Suggest Pureprofile, My Opinions, Reward Central, My survey, Valued Opinions, Your Voice in tandem with Toluna. Welcome and good luck.

Unless something has changed again, you do know you don't get paid for opinions just the surveys?

You will never become rich doing online surveys but getting a few extra dollars every now and again comes in handy. Toluna is one of the better sites when it comes to paying rewards, but the gifties are a bit of fun and chances of them becoming real are very slim. If you enjoy doing surveys and reading or postion opinions this can be very fun place to spend some of your time.

You'll have to judge this for yourself. This post of yours does not seem to appear among the normal progression of opinions. This is happening to other members. Someone is making some judgement about your topic and it is not Big Brother, it is someone in Toluna. Have you found out who?
